1. A Beauty and the Beast-inspired kit complete with a silk red rose, LED string lights, and wooden base with a glass cover... because nothing screams "romantic" quite like a prop responsible for moving an entire Disney plot along.

Amazon

Promising review: "This is such a great card set! There is a different Potter item on each card, but the cards are clear enough to use while playing conventional card games. I purchased two sets: one to play with, and the other to keep sealed as a collectible set." —Michelle

3. A chenille tufted pillow ideal for Harry Potter movie nights in which they've invited the whole gang over but, sadly, don't have the room to accommodate all of them. Magic = being able to turn their floor into comfortable seating when there's not enough couch space.

4. A gift assortment of Popbar hot chocolate sticks to upgrade their favorite winter beverage and holiday tradition into something slightly more luxe than Swiss Miss (no shade to Swiss Miss). 10/10 would swirl this around in my coffee, too.

Promising review: "Delish! Wish I had tried them earlier, before I had already bought gifts. These are so yummy and rich, you can almost use one for two cups of cocoa. I will likely get these again next year for sweet treats and holiday gifts." —Jane Mitchell

6. The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook, aka an easy way to bring the magic of Dole Whip into their own kitchen. This treasure book features over 100 Disney-inspired recipes that are definitively better than a FastPass — think Mickey macaroons, the perfect churro, and (of course) DOLE WHIP.

Promising review: "Beautiful hardcover cookbook with so many yummy Disney recipes from the parks! There is lots of Disney foodie history in it, plus recipes that look easy to follow with high quality ingredients. There are fun maps of each of the parks inside where the food is located from which makes it fun. As an avid Disney fan, I have never seen a cookbook like this." —Nicole

7. A personalized floral stamp that I guarantee made any bibliophile casually scrolling through this list stop and gasp. Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves aren't in the realm of possibility for them yet, but this delightful accessory puts their mark on any novel...guaranteeing that the books they've lent will safely make their way back to their personal library.

8. Taiyaki double pan for whipping up decadent fish-shaped waffles guaranteed to make them feel like they're brunchin' in Japan; they'll just have to fill 'em with custard, chocolate, cheese, red bean paste, sweet potato, and the extensive list truly goes on. Reviewers recommend Morinaga hotcake mix for the batter!

9. A virtual experience via Amazon Explore, a way for them to stroll the streets of Prague, explore the mysteries and ~magic~ of a renowned Edinburg cemetery, take a Tokyo-based cooking class, and more — all while their tush remains firmly planted on a couch.

Check out the below review for the "Mysteries, monsters and magic: explore Edinburgh's unusual tales":

"I lived for the better part of a decade in the UK and took any opportunity I could to visit Scotland. It's been some years since my last visit to Edinburgh and this was a wonderful way to reacquaint myself with a city I love. And I didn't even have to put on real clothes too do it! Even better: I earned a bunch of bonus points with my girlfriend for accidentally coming up with a great brunch date idea.

Angus was our guide and he was simply superb. His enthusiasm for showing off his hometown really elevated the whole experience. Though 60 minutes with him wasn't nearly enough time it never felt rushed and his anecdotes, stories, and cultural allusions filled the time we did have perfectly. Don't expect a whirlwind tour of the entire city; this is a fairly relaxed stroll that barely scratches Edinburgh's total geography, but with centuries of history embedded in virtually every brick and cobblestone you won't feel cheated." —foundgum

10. A dual-layered necklace they can consider the blazer equivalent for jewelry. Pourquoi? Because they can throw this on and, suddenly, their college sweatshirt paired with trousers looks unintentionally-but-actually-intentionally very polished. Dare I say, a TikTok chic ensemble is now theirs.

Amazon

Promising review: "Can’t beat the price for these necklaces! Love the layered look and get many compliments when I am wearing them. Definitely recommend!" —Jennifer Koval

11. A guitar pick tin I officially dub the perfect stocking stuffer for the music aficionado in your life. There's no better way of telling 'em you ~want to hold their hand~ than by giving them an illustrated Ringo in triangle form.

reviewer guitar picks
amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought these for our girls to give to my husband as a gift as he is a HUGE Beatles fan for when he plays his guitar. They are the perfect thickness for him, and he even gave a couple to our nephew who also plays guitar who actually has his music on Amazon Prime Music, so, it was great that he could share them, and they were perfect for both of them." —Roberta Garritson

12. Handmade pressed floral bookmarks to make their heart pitter-patter if they love bouquets but hate upkeep. These are made with real flowers — simply let the seller know the preferred ~color scheme~, if they'd like round or square corners and a tassel, and voila! A garden in their novel. No thorns. No snipping stems. No changing out the water.

Promising review: "I’ve been using recipes or extra pieces of paper as bookmarks for years so when I saw these beautiful bookmarks I knew I had to upgrade. I let the seller pick one for me and she did not disappoint it’s so beautiful and I’m obsessed. It’s very high quality as well and I expect it to last me for years. Will definitely be buying from again." —Karnee

13. A bread maker so that the perfect hunk of homemade carbs can be theirs with no serious baking expertise ~kneaded~. The secret sauce is a partially closed design which allows the steam to spread evenly for a perfectly golden loaf.

Amazon, amazon.com

This is both microwave and dishwasher safe. It's capable of withstanding temperatures up to 428 degrees.

Promising review: "I love this. It's very easy to use and to clean. I have been trying to make fresh bread every week and this is much easier than using my dutch oven. I have been trying different recipes with this bread maker and so far all have come out great!" —Amazon Customer

14. A microwavable plush wrap filled with dried French lavender for a soothing present that can provide stress and cramp relief. It's also available in a ton of animal designs — think lobsters, dinosaurs, polar bears, and (of course) sloths.

Promising review: "I received the pig as a Christmas gift last year because I suffer from chronic migraines. I loved it so much that I bought one for each member of my family and they just love them as well! I highly recommend picking up one for yourself, however; you better get one for everyone in the house otherwise they will just steal yours." —Tara Gilbert

15. The Adventure Challenge, a book on a mission to improve their at-home-boredom but also encourage them to get out and explore their own city. Here's how it works: Each ~activity~ is concealed with icons to indicate length of time, prep-work required, etc. They simply have to scratch off the boxes to reveal an out-of-the-box plan — they can complete the activity, write a blurb about it, and stick on a printed photo. 

the books
The Adventure Challenge

This scratch-off book is available in four versions — couples, family, friends, solo — so you can receive customized recs based on participants. I personally own and adore the couples version... me and my fiancé were prompted to build a fort, roast marshmallows, and put on a movie. 'Twas the most fun we've had in, like, a year.

You can also purchase the bundle pack ($147.99) that comes with their signature camera.

Promising review (couples edition): "We have done about six of the dates so far. We have laughed harder than we have in a long time. I have been touched by the thought that went into each of the dates. It is clear that they are not just thrown together, there is a purpose behind each of the "rules" of the date. I would say if I had made up the dates my husband would have balked, so it helps to have it be from a third party with the requirement to commit. There has not been a date so far that we haven't thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from. My husband LOVES it and has wanted to do several dates in a weekend (our original goal was to do one a week). For perspective we are in our forties and have been married for 22 years. It has been a bit reminiscent of our early dating years and reminded us to be more adventurous. So fun to shake it up! The only way you get the benefit is if you fully commit and go for it. Break out of your self-made boundaries! You strengthen your bond by shared experiences that invoke emotion: laughter, uncertainty, vulnerability in trying new things." —Terrell

Get it from The Adventure Challenge for $39.99+.

Expedited shipping available at an additional cost. 

16. A three-pack of color drip candles to turn the act of a birthday wish come true into a work of Picasso proportions. Reviewers swear that all they'll need is an empty wine glass (or old candelabra) to begin their foray into art.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Love these candles! Don't be deterred by the candles out the box, though they are mostly white on the outside there are lots of primary color pockets on the inside. They do take a while to burn (three to four hours by my count) but the results are by far worth being patient for. As the flame works through the candle, the primary color pockets blend with the white as well as with each other to create a wide range of colors... I've seen yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, greens, and blues on my finished bottles." —5ammosh

17. A fancy Scrabble game for the competitive pal who always suggests game night (*cue frustrated sigh*). The best part about this particular version? It's surprisingly compact and portable — the wood case closes for storage and can neatly fit all miscellaneous pieces inside.

Promising review: "Road trips without some good games along stifles the fun. This travel edition works well for a busy family and I highly recommend this version, which takes a beating better than the plain board." —Madd Maxx

18. An I Dew Care wash-off mask that smells (and looks!) as delicious as a Funfetti slice. Sending them birthday cake skincare with moisturizing hyaluronic acid and squalane > an actual birthday cake, and I mean that with every ounce of my being.

Amazon

Promising review: "I Dew Care really outdid themselves on this mask. It is super hydrating and made my skin feel soft and bouncy, and it also left it with a little glow without a serum. It washed off like a dream and the scent is so good. If you don't like sweet scents I wouldn't recommend, but it smells just like cupcake batter." —Abigail Karl

19. A moon-shaped handheld light so you can reenact that iconic It's a Wonderful Life scene: "I'll give you the moon, Mary." They can simply tap the moon to adjust its brightness, plus it lasts for up to 10 hours on a single charge.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool 'blue moon' color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally "hold the whole moon in your hand" and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a nightlight, a lantern or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room décor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, co-workers, kids, pets and spouses. My #1 purchase pick for 2020!" —Amazon Customer

20. A desktop metal clip tree for displaying up to 18 photos, postcards, and other mementos. This is also fab for storing receipts and important slips of paper that will inevitably get lost (no offense to them).

Amazon

Promising review: "This thing is super cool. It was a gift for my MIL who likes to display pictures on table tops and shelves as opposed to hanging them in frames. The clips make it easy to change out pictures and the spacing between each hook/clip allows each picture to be seen, none overlap." —Valentine24711

22. A handmade Venus-inspired candle featured on every aspirational morning routine TikTok they have ever seen — and for PETE'S SAKE, I have never needed a gift so badly for myself in my life!!!! These hunks of beeswax and soy are pieces of art that I expect will turn my bedroom into The Met. I think.

23. A cubic zirconia ring cleverly designed as a fidget spinner, which is great to wear whilst they watch nerve-wracking TV: long-awaited Oprah interviews, scenes in which the swamp lady is mentioned during The Haunting of Bly Manor, etc.

Amazon

Promising review: "I LOVE these rings. They're gorgeous, they sparkle beautifully in the sunlight, they fit well, and the spinning is so satisfying. It spins very smoothly and can go on for quite a while. I've been wearing the silver one daily for almost two months, and there's no sign of fading either on the metal or in the rhinestones. It looks as new as the day I bought it. I used to carry a fidget cube around, but this is much more discreet, prettier, and since I can just wear it all day I'm never stuck without something to play with. I highly recommend!" —Michelle

24. A Tequila Mockingbird cocktail kit to turn your book-obsessed soulmate into a professional mixologist.

26. A galaxy projector if they, like me, are a 26-year-old adult with a perpetual fear of the dark. Consider this an easy way for them to hide the fact that their cousins made them watch The Exorcist at the ripe age of 5 and they haven't been the same ever since — lighting aside, their ceiling will look magical. 

All jokes aside, this is a genuinely awesome projector — it comes with a remote control, Bluetooth capability, white noise options, and 10 colorways to choose from. 

Promising review: "Oh man, I was nervous about the quality of this product, but when it arrived, it exceeded expectations. It has a ton of different color/brightness/rotation settings and while the remote took a little time to figure out, it works great! The Bluetooth hookup is amazing for meditating, but I could see using it for more of a party vibe. This was SO worth every penny. Relaxing, comforting, and aesthetically GORGEOUS." —Samantha Aiello

27. A copy of Wreck This Journal, an easy way to bring themselves back to high school weekends spent cutting up magazine photos and collaging. This book includes several daily activities including, get this, a stain log — ones they'll want to celebrate instead of dousing in white vinegar or club soda.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I seriously love this journal! It is the most fun I’ve had with any journal or sketchbook and has really stretched my creativity. I bought two so my friend could do one too and she brings it over for our weekly get-togethers. We drink wine and do a page or two and have a blast." —S. Johnson

Have a friend who prefers "Monster Mash" to "Silent Night"? This is for them.

Carolrhoda Books

I very randomly picked up this book in Boston last year and it has become one of my most prized possessions. At the risk of sounding like a total child (which honestly...I am), it really is a fun, informative book that's packed with beautiful imagery and easy-to-read charts. I read it out loud to my fiancé when we were driving back home and even he loved it. And for reference, he has no interest in spooky things.

Promising review: "I have purchased cheap truffle oils before but the flavor is not as intense as this. Bear in mind that this oil is to be used as a finishing element. Drizzle it on popcorn or over noodles or vegetables. Swirl it into homemade cream soups just before serving instead of butter or sour cream." —Beguiling
